Help! *Sell my Strat for RG? - Any advice?
I have played a Strat for a long time, and have never had any major problems with it. *My current Strat has 3 Lace Sensors (Red, Silver, *and Blue) locking Schaller tuners, etc. so it would stay in tune better. *Lately, however, I have noticed my playing style has started to show the weaknesses of the guitar. *Namely, it goes out of tune often with any kind of whammy use (even with the locking tuners)and the pickups sound a bit thin. *I have an opportunity to move into a RG520QS, and would like opinions of other Ibanez owners (who I'm sure have played a Strat or two before..) to help me make a decision. *I like my guitar now, and would hate to get rid of it for a guitar that isn't as good as it is, but the RG seems to (maybe) be better suited to my playing style as I practice more. *I can't afford to have two guitars, so any helpful advice on this would be appreciated. *Thanks!
